Spotted Ratings, Sunday 11/24/13


WHAT MATTERS:
  • Sunday's headline event was ABC's American Music Awards, another ABC awards show to completely rebound after a major hiccup last year. The show had a 3.4 last year but a 4.3 in each of the previous two years (and was above 5 for the two years before that). And it did over three times the usual ABC rating in the slot, making things tougher for normal originals on CBS/Fox.
  • NBC posted another huge Sunday Night Football number courtesy of an overtime Broncos/Patriots game. It was down a single tick from last week's gigantic Broncos/Chiefs game, but it's still a fantastic number for this time of year (up 32% from the corresponding game a year ago).
  • Among the two networks airing entertainment programs, the only real surprise on an extremely crowded evening was a very low number from The Amazing Race, which adjusted up but still hit a series low by two tenths and was down year-to-year much more drastically than the other CBS/Fox shows.

The Amazing Race wasn't a clip show. The double-whammy of the American Music Awards and Sunday Night Football hurt Race, similar to how ABC's David Blaine's special and the CMA's hurt the major networks (Chicago Fire & Person of Interest for the former, The X-Factor for the latter).


I wonder if ABC will load up on the sweeps stunts next November considering how well all of them did this time around. Although I wouldn't be surprised to see another David Blaine special put into production for May sweeps...

Spot said...

I think ABC should consider an era in which Sundays are all specials. That would be smarter IMO.

Spot said...

The scary thing is, that might even work. Finding enough specials might be the tricky bit, but it would at least mean they wouldn't load up on doomed dramas.

Spot said...

I agree. They wouldn't have enough specials for all weeks but they could fill in with cheap reality for the rest of the days and call it a day.
